Our vision for the future of learning

The Teaching and Learning Center empowers and engages the instructional community in the School of Life Sciences. We work hand in hand with faculty to design outstanding student-centered learning through inclusive pedagogy, evidence-based practices, data-driven decisions and digital innovation.

The Teaching and Learning Center is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion through who we are, what we value and what we do. We offer a wide range of events, services and consultations to cultivate a cycle of dialogue, reflection and transformative learning-experience redesign across ASU and the School of Life Sciences.
